Here are the details on the source from the taper:
"As for how I recorded it; I used a Sony Mini Disc recorder (I forget the model number, 510?), a cheap pair of microphones that I got from Radio Shack over 10 years ago that have held up remarkably well, and a battery box that I got from soundprofessionals.com...I end up losing the digital-ness, because I end up transferring the recording to my computer using Spin Doctor. That allows me to adjust the levels a little,
but not too much or it ends up sounding crappy."
The sound is remarkably good-warm and yet very crisp, anything but "crappy." There's some banter that's a little hard to hear at times, but that's rare. The music sounds spot-on.
